1. The Historic Centre – best area to stay for your first visit to Verona

Most of Verona’s key attractions are located within its compact historic core. These include the famous Juliet’s House and Balcony and the Roman Arena.

2. Porta Nuova – best area for making day trips by train from Verona main train station (Verona Porta Nuova).

How I Chose These Luxury Hotels in Verona

Let me be completely transparent. I have not stayed in all of these hotels (although I have stayed in a few). Clearly, this would be impossible for a single traveller

Instead, I have based my recommendations on first-hand knowledge of Verona’s neighbourhoods and by researching hotel reviews across more than one platform.

I’ve done the heavy lifting so you don’t have to.

When choosing these luxury hotels in Verona, I have taken the same care as if I were booking accommodation for myself. This extends to identifying hotels that offer single rooms for solo travellers.
